The Historical Grand Scenario for the Battle of the Bulge. On December 16th, 1944, Hitler launched his last major offensive in the west. Having secretly assembled a large army in the dense woods of the Ardennes, he hoped to punch through the lightly defended sector and race to the Meuse River. This could drive a wedge between the Allied armies on the continent. The offensive was doomed by a combination of unexpectedly stiff resistance, a strong Allied response, a tenuous German supply situation, and mainly an overambitious plan. Still, had the plan succeeded, it could have greatly altered the outcome of the war. [size huge] Editor's notes: This scenario was altered to allow German and SS panzer and panzer grenadier division as well as corps and army level pioneers to breakdown into companies. This allows more flexibility but still restricts other lower quality axis divisions.
